called pol. what that would do is you had a drone that's offset to cameras and all looking down and could be 24 hours and up to a week. what it's doing is sucking up intelligence and where the people are and what cars are coming and going. more importantly it saw the trenches and gave the indication that something was going to happen. >> that's how they know what time to go in and when there's woman and children there. >> all the balance of risk. the commander on the ground is accessing the risk and at that point they believe that there was a battle of a mass. >> you mention balance of rest. there was one that was killed her and a father hooiimself. they say that there were 70 hostages and they're saying that there were no kurds there.

san jose vicky/2shot i'ck good morning. your time now is 6:26. we want to start you off right now with a look outside at san jose. sun not quite up yet. but twinkling beautiful lights and it's a cool, crisp morning. i'm vicky nguyen alongside anthony slaughter standing by with a look at that microclimate forecast. it was chilly this morning. >> it's going to get colder towards this upcoming week. fall is definitely here. it's a weak one but it is going to trigger light showers across parts of the north bay. already seeing a few of those towards san helena, clear lake and now starting to see that towards bodega bay. you'll even see a few areas of drizzle through san francisco at least for the first half of the day. then by this afternoon we will clear out. temperatures will be cool today. back into the 60s at the
coastline and back into the 70s for our inland valley. so the only place that we'll see 80s will be the tri-valley and extreme south bay, gilroy. otherwise it is going to be a cool cloudier day. and then we have another chance of rein, vicky, ahead in our seven-day forecast on wednesday. we'll talk about that at 7:00. >> looking forward to it. anthony, thank you. irnlts breaking news right now. a west oakland home is evacuated as police surround the spot where two wanted gunmen are believed to be holed up. this standoff has been going on on center street since 1:00 is this morning. that's just two blocks away from the west oakland b.a.r.t. station. we first broke the story during our 11:00 newscast. police say the men inside are believed to be the same ones behind a deadly shooting at a cbs parking lot in livermore. they shot two people, one person was killed. police found the suspects in oakland. we will keep monitoring this fluid situation. and we'll update you with the very latest. a man on the run makes a daring jump from the bay bridge. but he couldn't escape the long
arm of the law this morning. he is behind bars. it started yesterday morning with a report of a man with a knife in the marina district. when officers arrived, the suspect jumped into a running patrol car. police say he drove off hitting several cars. the suspect made it all the way to treasure island before police caught up to him. he ditched the car and then jumped 30 feet from the upper deck to the lower deck of the bay bridge. a police officer also jumped after him to make the arrest. neither man was badly hurt. closed once again. the dmv is no longer open on the weekends. as you can see, the dmv that we went to in san jose wasn't very crowded. saturday business hours started when undocumented immigrants were allowed to apply for driver's licenses. anticipating a large number of requests, dmv started opening on saturday to handle the demand. this is video from when that bill first wept into effect. you can see the lines out the door. with demand now down, the dmv says it no longer needs to be
open on saturdays. and coming up at 7:00 on "today in the bay," put on temporary hold by patricia. a bay area couple literally weathers the storm to trade nuptials in mexico. we'll hear from the happy newlyweds. that plus we'll have all of your top stories and anthony slaughter will be back with a look at that seven-day forecast. for now, though, we'll send you back to the "today" show.

i'm good. >> in just a moment, we have the blurred lines case and first, we want to get you caught up on the stories making headlines on this southbound at half past the hour. mandatory evacuations are under way in texas. days of downpours have washed out roads and derailed a freight train and led to several dramatic high-water rescues. new video out of oklahoma showing a horrific moment a suspected drunk driver plowed into a crowded homecoming parade. at least four people were killed including a 2-year-old. police say another 44 people were injured. police are still awaiting toxicology reports done on the 25-year-old driver. and fireworks in iowa for democratic presidential front-runner hillary clinton as she's stumping serious star power on saturday. pop star katy perry alongside her husband former president clinton and he was making his first appearance for her on the campaign trail. >> now we want to get to the blurred lines controversy as the wind continues to blow out here
on the plaza. this morning there is new and surprising video of robin thicke and pharrell williams over the copyright lawsuit with marvin gaye's family. kristen dahlgren is here with us. >> good morning. it was the landmark plagiarism trial brought by the family of marvin gaye and there was a judgement against robin thicke and pharrell williams that shocked industry observers, but we didn't know the details of the testimony until now. robin thicke in his own words? with all due respect i was high and drunk every time i did an interview last year. >> reporter: in this taped deposition the singer tries to explain why he said certain things in interviews. >> when i give interviews i tell whatever i want to say to help sell records. "blurred lines" certainly sold. one of the biggest hits of 2013, but the family of marvin gaye said the song sounded all too familiar. ♪
♪ >> reporter: claiming thicke and co-writer pharrell williams copied gaye's 1977 song "got to give it up." thicke and williams questioned under oath by the opposition attorney. at times, things get contentious. >> what are the cords in the bar blues? >> i'm not here to teach music. >> you have to answer the question. >> i'm not here to teach music. >> reporter: in a statement for nbc news, an attorney for the gaye family writes, the video deposition of mr. williams and thicke obviously speak for themselves. at trial, we contrasted that testimony with what we showed the jury and court were markededly different accounts both gave outside of the case about their intent for creating "blurred lines." in march, they awarded the state $7.4 million and they were later reduced to $5.3 million. >> to see one of the biggest
songs of the century is quite shocking. >> thick's case couldn't have been helped by testimony like this. >> do you consider yourself an honest person? >> no. >> these tapes are coming out just as "blurred lines" duo and their attorneys are getting ready to file. the songs are still different and we look forward to complete vindication on appeal. >> certainly interesting to see them like that. thank you so very much. dylan is outside with the final check of the weather, drizzly was the term we heard earlier. >> they left us in the rain. they all went inside and we're all standing out here, but it is going to become a better day in the northeast. we've got some morning showers and a little bit of a breeze and it's the cold front moving through. it's moving through new england and boston seeing pockets of heavier rain all of the way down to the gulf coast and the remnants of patricia pumping in moisture today and the biggest threat is in louisiana, and also some severe storms possible right along the coast.
behind this front it is going to cool off and we are looking at the 50s and the 60s and alabama will see some of the heavier rain and also the western panhandle of florida, too. in the northeast, highs only in the 50s mountain snow and even some valley rain. we're talking about a little bit of showery activity as we head through the day today. it will mainly be confined to the north bay but you see the storm system has lots of cloud cover but not a lot of rain. you turn on the doppler radar and you can barely pick out any showers. light and spotty across the north bay and even san francisco and the coastline will get in on a little bit of drizzly activity as we head through the morning hours. elsewhere expect a good mix of sun and clouds later this afternoon from the east bay over towards the south bay. but again, san francisco and the north bay, you'll see gray skies through most of the morning. and that's your latest forecast. erica? >> dylan, thank you. turning to a controversy in tampa about how police in that city are fighting crime in certain neighborhoods.
critics say an aggressive campaign targeting bike riders amounts to racial profiling. it's an allegation that's steered the city to ask for a federal investigation. nbc's kerry sanders has that story. >> reporter: tampa police on patrol in a high-crime area. officer katie repeatedly pulls over mostly young black men on bikes. >> do you have your i.d. on you? >> yes, ma'am. >> some are cited for minor violations. you have to have your light in the front and others attached to the back with a reflector. >> it comes with batteries and everything else we need. >> those bike stops lead to arrests. some call this tampa's version of new york's controversial stop and frisk. when reporters at the tampa bay times first examined more than 10,000 bike tickets, they discovered in a city that is 25% black, 79% of all bike citations
were issued to african-americans. some call it biking while black. >> at its core this is about clearly the police do things differently in one neighborhood than they do another. >> reporter: along tampa's bay shore boulevard in a predominantly white section of town, they found one bike ticket had been issued in the past year. the person who received that citation was black. tampa's new police chief defends the policy. >> there's nothing here to be ashamed of? >> absolutely not. >> you stand by what your officers are doing? >> day to day operations every day. you stick with the plan? >> absolutely. >> reporter: the chief grew up in the very neighborhoods where most of those bike tickets are issued. stopping teenagers on bike at 2:00, 3:00, 4:00 in the morning is an effective way of crime prevention. the tampa bay times reports the number of bike tickets has reduced dramatically with far fewer going to black bicyclists.
>> we have a lot of juveniles that do create serious offenses in this area and so they use bicycles. >> reporter: city officials are waiting for their own requested justice department review to make sure the bike stops are not only legal, but fair. >> all right. be safe. >> for today, kerry sanders, nbc news, tampa. up next on "today" our sunday story, shoes changing the lives of children livering in property, to retro video games now bringing families together. on sundays with harry, how the met is being offered to a whole new generation of to the car that just survived hours of reconditioning... sorry, we know that was a bit... invasive. but, if we didn't hoist you up in the air and poke around a little, we wouldn't be carmax. we expect a lot from our cars and we need to make sure that you'll make the grade. you have to admit, you're looking awfully nice.

back now on a sunday morning, any parent can tell you how often your children grow out of shoes so it is no surprise that millions of children living in extreme poverty go to school barefoot each and every day and there is a generous campaign. >> not just getting shoes which as we know is critical. it's the kind of idea that when you hear it it makes you wonder, why didn't someone think of this sooner. a shoe that expands with the children, lasting a full five years where shoes is a precious resource. >> shoes in kenya. >> it sounds simple. it's just a pair of shoes, but for these kids it makes a giant difference.
>> the idea for this simple pair of shoes was inspired by kent and lee' first job out of college at an orphanage in africa. a lack of funding and donations meant the 140 children there were without proper fitting shoes. >> how many kids around the world don't have shoes? >> 300 million and countless more have shoes that don't fit. over 2 billion people have some kind of transmitted disease. kids without shoes, they get a cut and a scrape and next thing you know they're getting infected from something from the soil. >> the answer, this sandal which is designed to last a full five years and grow along with the child. >> this is just a really firm, sturdy bottom to the show. >> how does it grow? >> it grows in the front, five different sizes and in the sides with the snaps and in the back with the buckle. >> reporter: it took five years to bring lee's vision to life. he helped deliver the first last
october. >> what does it mean for the kids? >> just to have a pair of shoes and for many kids the first pair of shoes they've ever had in their lives. >> the second batch of 8,000 pairs packed by volunteers left u.s. in august. they'll be delivered by partner organizations around the world. to date, kids in nearly two dozen countries are now wearing the $15 shoes. >> it's humbling for me to see people get so excited about this and my goal is to help as many kids as possible. >> they're continually improving the design of the shoe that grows because it is looking at innovative ways to tackle other issues around the globe, something he calls practical compassion which i love that phrase. there's been interestingly enough, interest from parents in the u.s. remember, these sell for $15 bucks, right? it's $60 a pair for kids here, but if you buy a pair for $60
because for every pair you buy they'll send two. >> i was wondering how they expand and grow and it's not a bad idea and you hope it comes to the u.s., too, because there are so many kids could use it, too. >> it feels like a tire. great idea and we were glad to bring it to you. sheinelle is live with the plaza fan of the day. >> yes, i have fans of the day. we have colleen, kristen and karen from minnesota. good morning to you, ladies. >> welcome to new york. this is your first time in new york city. what's been your best part. >> today show. >> you're celebrating your 22nd birthday. isn't that a taylor swift song? >> yes. >> yes. >> happy 22. ♪ i found a better deal on prescriptions. we found lower co-pays... ...and a free wellness visit.

good sunday morning to you. your time is 7:00. we want to give you a live look right now out at san jose as the sun begins to rise. thank you so much for waking up with us. i'm vicky nguyen. let's get a check of that microclimate forecast with anthony slaughter. >> good morning. we're looking at clouds building across the area. we have a cold front that's going to slide through later on this morning and that's going to trigger a few areas of showers mostly for the coastline. you can actually see the showers are very light in nature. so a lot of this stuff that we do see this morning will be light and probably just enough to get the ground wet. so we're not expecting a whole lot in terms of rainfall. nonetheless, any accumulation.
